  • 'House of Cards': Get a First Look at President Claire Underwood in the Final Season Teaser (VIDEO)

Season Six of House of Cards got off to a bad start when lead actor Kevin Spacey was accused of sexual harassment and misconduct by multiple men, including eight employees who worked on House of Cards.

The first trailer for the sixth and final season of the Netflix political drama, the first without Kevin Spacey, debuted during the Oscars telecast on Sunday.

Consisting of little more than a sweeping look through the halls of the White House, we're soon met by now-President Clare Underwood who boldly proclaims "We're just getting started". The promo shows the hustle and bustle outside the office before Claire spins around in the President's chair and says, "We're just getting started".

Instead, Claire Underwood - played by Robin Wright - will take command for the final instalment, which will be available to stream later this year. Kevin Spacey's fall from grace should, by all rights, have killed the series stone dead.

Allegations against the 58-year-old first surfaced after actor Anthony Rapp told BuzzFeed News that Spacey, then 26, made a sexual advance on him when he was 14 years old.
